QUESTION: I was told that our health plan covers massages. Is this true? How would one go about getting a massage through this plan?

Sorry if the answer is on the internet, I haven't been able to find a straight forward answer.

  1. Massages from the sports clinic in the lower level of the slc. they have you fill out a form, which you then bring to the office that is in the slc.

  2. Yes, they are covered. 80% per massage therapy session up to $400 per calendar year (*not* plan year). Lambrini is the main massage therapist in the downstairs SLC mentioned above (aka SOS Physiotherapy). You could call or show up in person to make an appointment. Pay up front, receive insurance coverage later.

    1. Does it cover "rub and tugs" too?

  3. I'm not sure if things have changed but typically you need a doctor's note to receive coverage

    1. Usually you just have to go to an RMT, pay up front, and submit the bill to your insurance to get money back.
      I don't know anyone who's had to get a doctor's note.

    2. I've had massage therapy before and never even went to the doctor to get a referral and had no issues getting reimbursed.
